Diwali, also known as the Festival of Lights, is a five-day Hindu festival celebrated in autumn every year. The festival spiritually signifies the victory of light over darkness, good over evil, and knowledge over ignorance. Diwali is also a time for reunion and fellowship.
The first day of Diwali is called Dhanteras, and it celebrates the goddess Lakshmi. Hindus believe that Lakshmi is the goddess of wealth and prosperity. On this day, people purchase new gold or silver jewelry or other items to celebrate the auspicious occasion.
The second day of Diwali is called Naraka Chaturdasi. It commemorates the day when Lord Krishna destroyed the demon Narakasura. On this day, Hindus perform special prayers and rituals to celebrate Lord Krishna's victory.
The main event of Diwali is on the third day, which is called Lakshmi Puja. Hindus celebrate Lakshmi as the goddess of wealth and prosperity. On this day, they perform special prayers and rituals to invite her into their homes. They also perform fireworks displays, eat festive foods, and give gifts to each other.
The fourth day of Diwali is called Govardhan Puja. On this day, Hindus celebrate the story of Lord Krishna protecting his people from a devastating storm by lifting Mount Govardhan on his little finger. They pray to Lord Krishna for protection and blessings during the coming year.
The fifth and final day of Diwali is called Bhai Dooj. It celebrates brother-sister love and affection. On this day, sisters invite their brothers over for a special meal, and brothers give their sisters gifts as tokens of their love and affection.
